The Washington Times cited CEI’s Senior Fellow Marlo Lewis on E15 fuel limit raise.
The Competitive Enterprise Institute, which frequently supports Mr. Trump’s initiatives, also opposed the ethanol proposal.
“The corn lobby will be the only winner if EPA lifts the federal ban on sales of E15 in summer driving season,” said CEI senior fellow Marlo Lewis. “E15 can cause engine damage and void the warranties of millions of vehicles on the road. E15’s inferior fuel economy will force motorists to fill up more often and get fewer miles to the gallon. Allowing E15 sales in summer driving season is also unlawful under the plain language of section 211(h)(4) of the Clean Air Act.”
